There's been a lot of talk about Pedro since he got into the hall last year but to me this was his greatest achievement. To go into Yankee Stadium as the Yankees were in the middle of their three straight championships and dominate like this was truly incredible. Not to mention this was the height of the steroid era. What separates Pedro from anyone since him is the killer mentality. We have had some great pitching since (Johan Santana 2004-06, Kershaw 2011-15) but nobody has instilled fear in batters the way he did. And that's not a shot at Santana or Kershaw at all. It's just a compliment to Pedro.
I'll close with one of my favorite stats ever. In 2000 Pedro had a 1.74 ERA to lead the American League. The next closest? Roger Clements at 3.70, ALMOST A FULL TWO RUNS HIGHER! Pedro's peak may never be seen again.
